Police Scotland's Major Investigation Team detectives are appealing for witnesses and information following the discovery of the body of a 67-year-old woman within a flat in West Princes Street, Woodlands, Glasgow, around 4pm on Monday, 1 June.


An extensive investigation is underway to establish the circumstances leading up to the woman being found dead within her flat and officers are appealing for information from the public in order to assist with their enquiries. Detectives are working closely with local uniformed officers on this investigation and wish to reassure the public.


A post mortem will be carried out in due course to establish the cause of death and lines of enquiry are underway to formally identify the 67-year-old woman.


Detective Superintendent Suzie Chow, of Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Teams and senior investigating officer said: "Whilst we are at the early stages of the investigation into this suspicious death, we are following up a number of lines of enquiry and I would ask anyone who has any information that could assist with our investigation to please get in touch. It is imperative that we trace whoever is responsible for this woman's death as soon as possible.


"The area of West Princes Street is very residential and we are sure that there will be people who may have witnessed something untoward in the lead up to the discovery of the woman's body yesterday. If you have any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem to you, please contact us as soon as possible."


Superintendent Ross Allan of Greater Glasgow Police Division, said: "This is a very distressing incident and we understand that the local community will be extremely shocked and concerned about this but I would like to take this opportunity to reassure them that we have a team of officers working alongside our detective colleagues to trace whoever is responsible for this crime. Additional officers will be in and around the local community of Woodlands and I would encourage anyone with any concerns or any information to approach these officers."
